Ron Reagan Jr. Keeps Bringing the Comedy: My Father Was More Like Obama, Nothing in Common With Palin

Ron Reagan Jr., the tool who showed little except disrespect and contempt for his father when he was alive and is now peddling the debunked lie that he had Alzheimer’s while in office, continues to be dragged around by the liberal media because of his newfound love of Palin-bashing:

Reagan in marking the 100th anniversary of his birth, one of the former president’s sons has an unlikely comparison in mind between his father and a current political figure.

Asked who is more like his father – President Obama or Sarah Palin – Ron Reagan didn’t hesitate:

“Just on the basis of intelligence, you would have to say Barack Obama. I don’t think my father has anything in common with Sarah Palin whatsoever,” Ron Reagan told us on ABC’s “Top Line” today. “I’m a little offended that we even have to talk about Sarah Palin, who has nothing interesting to say.”

This is part of an ongoing effort to keep shoveling the horse hockey that Time Magazine dumped all over the floor last month.

Let’s take a look at just how similar Reagan and Obama are:

Reagan: “A troubled and afflicted mankind looks to us, pleading for us to keep our rendezvous with destiny.”

Obama: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States.”


Reagan: “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”

Obama: “For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus—and non-believers.”


Reagan: “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

Obama: “It is only government that can break the vicious cycle where lost jobs lead to people spending less money which leads to even more layoffs.”


Reagan: “Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.”

Obama: “Just as we stood for freedom in the 20th century, we must stand together for the right of people everywhere to live free from fear in the 21st century. And as the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon, the United States has a moral responsibility to act.


Reagan: “Make no mistake, abortion-on-demand is not a right granted by the Constitution. No serious scholar, including one disposed to agree with the Court’s result, has argued that the framers of the Constitution intended to create such a right.”

Obama: “Abortions should be legally available in accordance with Roe v. Wade.”

On which side of the above quotes would Sarah Palin most likely fall?

Sure Ron… your father was way more like Obama than Palin:
